2009 Christmas Shopping Tips

By: James Danielson

Looking for the perfect Christmas gift for that special somebody but not sure where to start? Been there, done that! This site is the place to find just about Christmas gift imaginable. I always like to start out with Amazon.com because they are the largest online retailer on the planet. Santa probably lives some where at Amazon's headquarters.
It's best to start your Christmas shopping as early as possible. Often, we have most of our shopping completed before the Thanksgiving rush.
I like to do research on my gifts for Christmas. Amazon, Walmart, and Target have incredible product reviews. Manufactures like Hasbro and Matel are very resourceful. If this is not your style, then you will love my methods. Go to Amazon and pick a category for gifts, click a few links, and you will be done. You could be complete in less than an hour without wrapping a single present yourself. In fact, you may never have to even touch the gift if you choose to have it shipped gift wrapped.
Top 10 Christmas shopping tips:
Look for online sales on toys with free shipping Batch purchase your Christmas gifts to save on shipping. Search the Internet for online coupons and save 10% or more. Purchase online gift certificates or gift cards Have your Christmas gifts wrapped and delivered. Research what Christmas gifts are hot and what's not! Shop clearance sales. Do Your Research. Order out of state and avoid sales tax. Check Craigslist for freebies!
Make a written list and stick to your plan. I know this may sound silly for some of you. Relax, there are no proven statistics that say you will spend more without a list. Just make a mental note if list making is not in your genetic code. Just try to keep the impulsive buying to a minimum
If you have an extremely hard person to buy for, get them a Christmas gift card. They can always be redeemed for cash. Have you noticed how many grocery stores like Safeway offer gift cards at the check out? You are allowed to charge them up with any dollar amount. Is this cool or what? Amazon gift cards are about the best out there because some one can always find a gift.
Chances are you may be one of those hard to buy people and you love gift cards. Get the message out and you may get all your gifts in cards this year! If you have a lonely neighbor, what better way to make their Christmas blessed.
